BURGLARS struck at a house while the owner was visiting her mum in hospital.

Thieves lifted the back patio door of a house in Windsor Road, Gosport, off its runners to get inside.

They then searched the house and took a black Xbox games console with controllers, a men’s pocket watch on a gold chain and a Sony digital camera.

It happened between 5pm and 6pm on Monday.
